* [[spoiler:Nessiah]] of ''YggdraUnion'', ''YggdraUnison'', and ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'' is relatively blase about simply dying--he's been through it so many times that he's gotten used to the pain, and in ''YggdraUnion'' and ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'', he dies slowly and painfully several times onscreen, mostly from being skewered or badly beaten. He is extremely ''not'' blase about the fact that [[BodyHorror his real body is slowly beginning to rot]]. One of ''VideoGame/BlazeUnion'''s endings has him lose his ability to manifest separately, [[FateWorseThanDeath thus confining him to that decaying body forever]]. The game tries not to draw too much attention to this. [[DisproportionateRetribution Wonder]] [[FridgeHorror why.]]

** Taken UpToEleven in ''Film/{{Logan}}'': thanks to his advanced age, his healing factor isn't what it used to be, and as a result, he is covered in scars and open wounds (which apparently get infected on a regular basis), is visibly stiff and arthritic, has vision and hearing issues, and intermittently has his claws get stuck halfway, which requires him to pull them the rest of the way out and visibly causes incredible pain. It's also caused his drinking to go from steady but controlled to absolutely out of control, and he is frequently visibly drunk or hungover. The years have ''not'' been kind to the man

* The ''WesternAnimation/RobotChicken'' short "{{Jesus}} and the Argonauts" has [[CaptainObvious Jesus]] leading half of the Argonauts on adventures and getting them killed while fighting monsters due to his [[StupidGood pacifist]] ways. Whenever he gets killed, cue angelic choir and pillar of light, and he's back on his feet again. [[spoiler:At the end, he gets clubbed into the ground by a cyclops, resurrects, and gets clubbed ad-infinitum.]]

* ImmortalityHurts: Rhulad from ''Literature/MalazanBookOfTheFallen'' doesn't bear physical scars from his deaths, but every time he gets resurrected by his sword, his psyche breaks more and more. The results in ''Literature/ReapersGale'' are noticed by several people around him and it is utterly pitiful.

* Those infected with the needle symbiote in ''Literature/EdenGreen'' and sequel ''Literature/NewNight'' are not immune to the agony of regrowing destroyed parts of their bodies.

** Also of note is that he had just traded the Healing talisman to one of his teammates because he thought having Healing ''and'' Immortality was redundant-- not realizing that the Immortality talisman doesn't include healing and only seems to prevent outright lethal injury. It certainly doesn't prevent pain.

*** In the episode "Hell Bound", there was a ghost who didn't want to got to hell, so he sent other spirits in his place. In the end, he was made corporeal and trapped in (another) box, destined to spend eternity not going to hell, but staring at a brick out the small window.
